Thanks for writing to health care magic.

The duration of anti tubercular therapy depends on the organ involvement. In certain cases like where the central nervous system is involved prolonged duration of therapy is given. Certain cases only six months course is given.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
